Mandel School’s Terry Hokenstad debuts book, presents on human rights in Sweden

Terry HokenstadM.C. “Terry” Hokenstad, Distinguished University Professor, Ralph S. and Dorothy P. Schmitt Professor and professor of global health, recently returned from a European trip that included the launch of a book he co-edited, titled The Sage Handbook on International Social Work. The 540-page book covering the global dimension of social work debuted at the World Conference on Social Work and Social Development in Stockholm, Sweden.

In addition to co-editing the book, Hokenstad, a faculty member in the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, wrote several chapters, including “Social Work Education: The International Dimension” and “Older Persons and Social Work: A Global Perspective.” Authors of the rest of the 30 chapters came from across the world.

At the conference, Hokenstad also led a workshop, called “Teaching Human Rights,” and presented on human rights education.
